The only thing that I am concerned about as a parent is that the cost of some things in the school are rediculous. I know that this is a small town and some funding that bigger schools have may not be available to us. However, I have never had to spend the kind of money for my kids to attend a school than I have for MES, MMS or LCHS. My kids came from a school not too much bigger than here and never had to pay crazy fees as we are expected to do for Moulton. Furthermore, I feel as though we are living in 'Mayberry' as far as being behind the times (technologically speaking), but some people seem to think that the costs for some events/sports need to be like those of a huge school. Get it together and decide which it is!!

Don't listen to the bad reviews. MMS is a great school, with great faculty and staff. We DO have electricity, and we use technology regularly in class. I love MMS and I'm gonna miss it next year when I leave for 8th grade.

I think MMS is a wonderful school. Compared to other schools in the county, they do a wonderful job of preparing students for current as well as future needs. The choir shows are wonderful, but what happened to 5th grade band? My child is currently attending the summer program at MMS and is enjoying the classes while actively learning skills that will help her in the fall. My hat is off to the teachers and principal for a job well done!

I am a parent of a fourth grade student at MMS. I had read reviews and was concerned about technology. I see something completely different. The computer lab is up-to-date and used frequently. I believe most of the teachers are using projection systems in their classrooms. My child's teacher has remote control devices the students use in their lessons to put in answers so she can check their understanding. The teacher also has a wireless pad she uses for presentations and in place of the old blackboard. I have heard they are getting a wireless mobile lab. I think this school is one of the best in the area.

MMS is the best in Lawrence County. Check out those test scores! They are definitely doing some great things at this school. The academics are excellent. Choir is thriving but band is sinking lower and lower. Some sports are available for 7th graders. I see a lot of parents eating in the lunchroom, as I'm there often.

The quality of the academic programs at MMS is top notch. Music and art are not available to all students, however. Moulton Park and Rec offers sports for all, but little extracurricular activities are offered by the school. I think parent involvement has increased, primarily because of a real working PTO and the excellent leadership provided by the administration during the last two years. MMS desperately needs a new building, not the current high school building. Parents, teachers, and community leaders need to speak out loud and clear on this issue!

I have had three children to attend MMS. I have been very pleased with the overall academic achievement of the school. Due to the lack of funding and financial support the teachers and administration I feel do an adequate job in providing a great educational facility. An overall outlook of test scores can be deceiving due to the population of diverse students. However, thanks to the hard work of the students and faculty those scores have improved tremendously. Before presenting judgmental statements I encourage parents and those in the community to visit the school and become involved to see for yourself what kind of school Moulton Middle School has become.

Moulton Middle is an exceptional school. The teachers and administration at Moulton Middle really care about the students and their education. The teachers go above and beyond the call of duty to make learning fun. The new administration has caused morale to improve greatly. Scores are up too! I highly recommend this school for anyone seeking a quality education.

No one likes to think that they are perceived as being slack in his or her job, or, heaven forbid, that they hate children. Personally, I love 'my' children and enjoy teaching them. The staff I work with could all be working in different capacities, so, I feel they must enjoy their job as well. There are times that my job is more difficult at times than others, especially when outside factors influence the ability of the students to think and learn. Our administration is very supportive of its teachers, but not of those who are slack in doing their jobs. Excellence and professionalism is expected. I am sorry people are unhappy. Please don't judge the entire school based on the opinions of a few. We need to be part of a team to achieve excellence. Excellence takes growth and hard work. We need your support at school and home. SH

I have had three children at MMS. I believe the school is excellent, but I'm concerned about the fact that there has not been a computer lab for the last couple of years and that the band program is falling apart. When MMS had it's own band director, the band program thrived at the middle school and at the high school. 6th grade isn't even offered band this semester and I think it's very sad. Music has been shown to improve grades, so why has the music program been cut?

I believe MMS is a great school, and has improved tremendously in the past two years. Compared to other schools in our county, MMS offers many extra programs and opportunities. The teachers challenge the students, and they do require them to behave. That is what creates a good learning environment. If we want our children to learn, we can't expect them to get to talk all day. They need discipline, maybe even more than they receive. This school is climbing the educational ladder, and doing well with the resources that they have. I wouldn't want my child to go to any other school in the county. If you want your child to learn, MMS is an excellent school.

I am a teacher at MMS. Expectations for learning are very high here. Our administrators have high expectations for teachers as well. Recently, our school received a monetary award for raising test scores from the State of Alabama. Parents are encouraged to come to MMS and see what their children are learning. A few parents accept the invitation and typically leave pleased with what they see and return often to offer help. Our school offers band, music, (including several choirs) and many service organizations in which students can participate. Both of my sons were educated at MMS and left with high test scores. I am confident they received a high quality education while at MMS. They learned study skills while at MMS while participating in extra-curricular activities. While the buildings at MMS do need replacement the commitment of the teachers and staff at MMS never grows old.

I am very pleased with the performance of this school, especially under the new leadership. The school is structured and expectations are high. My child scored all 4s on his ARMT and scored in the high 90s on the Stanford. MMS is one of the only schools in the county to offer band and music for middle school students. The old buildings need to be replaced. The cleanliness of the campus improved tremendously last year. The staff and curriculum are great.

Do not send your kids to this school it is a bad decision. If you send your kids to this school they will not learn anything.

I wish I had some insite on this school before moving here..we would have located elsewhere. I have had 3 kids in MMS, Thankfully 2 are out of there already, and the other one is beginning to hate school. That is sad. What is happening in our schools? Children should enjoy going to school. Instead it is like walking into a military school everyday. It seems like they took talking completely out of school. They are kids give them a break. They are only small for a little while. Lets get the teachers (a few)off their cell phones and the computers while teaching a class...kids learn what the see. Some teachers here do not seem to even like kids...why are they here?
